Judi discovered a love of music early in life. She enjoyed music lessons on various instruments in elementary school and started playing guitar and singing folk music, first performing publicly at age 13.
Having grown up in a dysfunctional family, music became an integral part of her being by enabling her to express emotions through song. Because of her background, Judi's music is rich in emotions of her love for God whose gift helped carry her through her youth.
Judi continued singing a variety of musical styles in choirs and at various events, and eventually found her "home" in Christian music sharing her love of God and gratefulness for the gifts He has given her. Her greatest joy comes when she learns someone has been blessed in some special way by her music. Judi has performed for audiences from one to thousands. She would relish the opportunity to share her musical gifts with you and yours.
Not only does Judi love music, but she also thrives on being in the kitchen. Her love of cooking drove her to earn both Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Nutrition. She has served on the faculty of both Iowa Central Community College and Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa. She also owned and operated The Spice Rack store in Cherokee, Iowa, a combination bakery, bistro, and kitchen supply store.
Judi believes that each person has received God-given gifts and the use of those gifts is central to God's plan for us. Through her music and personal testimony, she encourages listeners to enjoy their gifts and use them for God's glory.
Dr. David Klee has mesmerized audiences with his music for twenty-five years. He has performed in over thirty-nine states and the Bahamas. David began his musical studies in Florida at the age of ten. After high school he went on to obtain three degrees in music, culminating with the Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in Flute Performance from the University of Georgia in 1998. During this time, he amassed considerable experience by playing many styles of music as a staff musician for leading recording studios in the Southeast and also as a touring performing artist. Dr. Klee has been on several university music faculties including Tift College, Georgia College and State University, Mercer University (Georgia), and Peru State College (Nebraska). He is currently an Associate Professor of Music Production and Technology and the Director of Jazz Studies at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa.

Dr. Klee is currently principal flute with the Fort Dodge Area Symphony, and The Karl King Band (Iowa), where he is also the assistant conductor, and previously owned and was chief engineer and producer for the Cherokee Recording Studio located in Cherokee, Iowa.
David has had to overcome many physical issues in order to learn, develop, and use God's gift of music. David led a dual journey in life combating his premature birth health problems/trying to live a normal life mixed with his journey learning music.
As an educator/performer David has been constantly dismayed over how many young adults he teaches who seem lost. Their lives seem to have no focus. They seem to wander aimlessly in many directions with no sense of purpose. David's ambition is to use his God-given musical skills to help show everyone that each of us does have purpose and meaning through God. Together with his wife, Judi, he hopes that he can help people find their special talents and purpose.
